A typical day at the camp includes:

  • 9:45am – Registration in Uddingston Cricket & Sports Clubhouse where camp coordinator will brief the children on the format of the camp and expectations
  • 10:00am – Coaches and children head to the international standard, water-based Astro-turf pitch where they are divided into groups according to age and ability before warming up. Children will then engage in suitable level drills to ensure the correct level of challenge and enjoyment.

Children at grassroot level will work on basic drills, including passing, stopping, dribbling. More advanced players will consolidate basic skills, and work to develop crucial skills such as elimination, shooting. The most experienced players will look to master advanced skills as well as develop a high level of understanding of tactics and gameplays, including specialist skills used in penalty corners.

  • 12:00pm – Children return to the clubhouse/picnic area at clubhouse to have packed lunch and snacks. We ask that parents/carers please avoid packing products containing nuts
  • 1:00pm – Children return to the pitch. Children warm up again before taking part in further drills and conditioned games
